Saw this outside Hay Gaol Museum which is in Hay, NSW. And I have no idea what it was called.

more October 2015 blogs. (or 2015 blogs)
from iTunes Store:
It was called a "traction engine", the forerunner of the modern tractor.
Though I don't see it in those photos, there would have been a large wheel on the side of the boiler, which could run varios attachments, such as a circular saw blade, or a shearing machine, or a hay-thrasher, or many other attachments in the mid to late 19th Century in Australia. They were coal or wood fired, the tall funnel may have been to keep sparks from igniting dry grass, or wheat or corn crops.

Thank you.
It's taken in a country town called Hay, so I assume it had something to do with hay.
Off topic: I am surprised with your wide range or knowledge. I thought you only knew some obscure vocabularies.

I am sticking my tongue out at you! Obscure vocabularies indeed!!
